William Holman Gallery

William Holman Gallery William Holman Gallery is a contemporary art dealer recently moved to the upper west side and a location in salt point, ny 12578. Please contact us.

The William Holman Gallery was founded in 2012 in New York City and in Salt Point, New York to exhibit the work of contemporary American and international artists who share our interests in painting, sculpture, drawing and conceptual work in all media. The Gallery also represents the Estates of Olin Dows and Carmel Snow. We will also build collections and secondary market sales as a complement to

the exhibition program. We begin this season with nine artists who are well known to us and whose work I have followed for years, or in some cases, decades. It is the Gallery's privilege to represent the work of these artists. Revealing as much emotion and intensity as artists do through their work and commitment is a way of life rather than a job - and requires an equal commitment by the Gallery to represent, exhibit and place the work in private and public collections around the world. We will begin exhibiting at 65 Ludlow Street, at the corner of Grand Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in October 2012. We are pleased to deal privately and all work on this site is available for sale. We would also be happy to discuss new commissions for site-specific and larger work. The Gallery's principles are based on this observation about the 20th Century Paris dealer Daniel H. Kahnweiler:

"What Kahnweiler invented in 1907, and what has been practiced ever since by the dealers who count for something in the history of living art, was a new kind of art dealing. In the nineteenth century the dealer employed a liveried doorman to keep the artists at bay....

Kahnweiler substituted for this an informal, unpretentious relationship in which a profound emotional commitment was the thing that mattered most. Where the old-style dealer did his artists a favor by inviting them to luncheon, Kahnweiler lived with Picasso, Braque, Gris, Derain, and Vlaminck on a day-to-day, hour-to-hour basis. The important thing was not so much that they should sell as that they should be free to get on with their work...'My painters just wanted to get on with their work..." from Assouline, Pierre, An Artful Life: A biography of Daniel Henry Kahnweiler, Paris, 1988, Balland et Cie.
